Hi All, my understanding is that we all fall into a class of CF. (see pic). Any idea how covid19 will react in CFers? The vaccine works on RNA not DNA according to this article and if i am reading it right. Any scientific geeky people here to explain this? Thank you!

article here

I think it should be fine. I don't see anything that requires a CFTR protein being involved in the vaccine, so I would think it should work on CF people the same way as non-CF people.

Thank you. Can you explain mNRA? I am wondering how that is different from DNA.

Sorry~
Try:
thanks. I already know this information and find it very general. Have not heard CFF or any CF doc explain how RNA works with CF

Hi I’m 63 and got both shots of the moderna vaccine already. That’s because I’m a doctor. I researched everything and spoke to my CF team and was absolutely told to go for it so I did! First shot just sore arm and muscle ache. Second shot fever 101, aches body and head, felt like flu. For three days felt lousy. Woke up fourth day fine. mRNA is different than DNA. Don’t be afraid to get shot it is a relief and brings us one step closer to having a life. I got Covid last year I almost died. My Fev1 is 30 percent prior to that I was at 40 percent. This virus is no joke. I’m just happy to be here and advocate for the vaccine! Good luck!

Thanks for your reply. I got my first shot of Moderna after speaking to a cellular molecular biologist. No doctor could answer the question I posed at the top of this thread. I had chills and was fine. Five days after felt like I got hit by a bus and brain fog. Then was fine. Second shot on Saturday and a little nervous.

You will probably fell unwell for day or two but u will get through it. Having the vaccine will protect u that even if u got Covid u will survive it. Good luck and from someone whose been there you can do this. Remember being a cystic we have so many battles this will be ok!
